Expert review of Orange Public House & Hotel

A beautifully decorated, luxury four-room B&B, above a fine gastropub in a posh part of town.

This is a lovely B&B with four big, airy rooms over an excellent gastropub. I didn’t feel I was in London at all while I was here, such is the sense of simple country luxury. The mood was relaxed, but the details have been taken care of too.

Location: 

Across the road from leafy Orange Square, which has a florists, Saturday farmers’ market and statue of the child prodigy Mozart with a bit of a psychotic stare. Shoppers are only a short walk from Sloane Square (also your nearest tube) and the King’s Road, a little further to Brompton Cross and Knightsbridge. The sightseeing’s pretty good too: about 10 minutes’ walk from Buckingham Palace, perhaps quarter of an hour from the South Kensington museums, much nearer to the contemporary art at the Saatchi Gallery.

Bedrooms: 

On the second floor, all four rooms are high-ceilinged and luxuriously furnished, with floor-to-ceiling green drapes, lots of wood and modish vintage en suite bathrooms - only the Orange room has a bathtub. There are 32” flatscreen TVs, free Wi-Fi and local calls, iPod docks and digital radios by the beds, but fashionably distressed brick and painted walls plus pots of dried herbs and plants lend a pleasant country air to the place. It all felt simple, fresh and uncluttered.

Eating and drinking: 

A major plus - in fact, book ahead if you’re planning to have dinner in the restaurant section. The cooking is excellent: tuck into big flavoured, juicy scallops, perhaps, or pan-fried sea bream. The pub itself has some fine beers and wines, but is civilised for a boozer. You’ll sit and sip, rather than throw down a few pints before heading out in search of nightlife.

Service: 

Sunny and helpful, with the offer of room service from the bar and restaurant a nice bonus.
